    Just seen a few screens starting to get advertised with 200hz rate. Now the 100hz rate seems to show a much better and defined picture according to my vision (which isnt 20:20)

    Not seen the 200hz screens close up yet, but was wondering if its a marketing ploy to get punters to part with more cash.

    Well, in motion resolution tests, the Sony Z4500 performs very well. I think it's slightly better than the W4500, but not as big a difference as the price might suggest.

    Perhaps not right at the moment, because, believe it or not, replacements are already on the cards for within the next couple of months. Though given the short turnaround time, I doubt a huge improvements. If anything, we can hope it'll drive down the price on current models.

    There are other advantages the Z has over the W; better sound quality, universal backlit remote control, fancy touch sensors on the screen, sturdier overall build quality.

    There is a difference, but is it worth the extra cash? Absouletely not!


    IMO, the 100/120Hz is more than enough and they should work on improving the algorithms.

    As just stated, there is a difference, but whether you'll notice it depends on what you watch and your own individual eye/brain functions.
    600 Hz was being marketed and previewed by some makers at CES last month.
